Do you know, I don't think I've ever lost a sock?

I lost underwear once. But that was only because my roommate (at one time) flung it out of the window. Jerk.

Well, you see, we don't actually know what the URL for the article will be until it's posted behind the scenes for editor approval. That's why we always forget to do it.

On the subject of KOTOR & KOTOR2 I am curious to know how many endings are viewable? How do you access the hidden endings if any,are there extra endings? Oh, and one more thing, whoever the f'ing moron is that stuck "barely literate" on the far left, I'll have you know I read at a adult level, It's just my writing skills that are not so good.

Do you really think that someone would bother slapping a custom title on you?

You are not special. You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake. You're the same decaying organic matter as everything else.

The key word in my previous post was *you*. The Bibleboy has done nothing to draw attention to him yet, YOU, on the other hand, Volly, have done quite a lot.

What weaknesses people may perceive from playing the game are actually a result of some of the engine’s greatest strengths. Eliminating those weaknesses would create noticeable vacuums elsewhere.

I wish he had given us an example; it sounds like it'd be interesting to hear about.

They also say that sarcasam is the recourse of the weak minded,mr king comrade. surely you jest? One more thing,I do believe I mentioned that my writing skills are not so good, 'kay. Oh and bad writing skills have nothing to do with age,or lack of intellegence on my part they have to do with not paying attention in class,oh about ages ago. So live long and prosper.
